formula = mivi+m2v2= mivi+m2v2

so far I have something like this: m(+4m/s)m2(+2m/s) = m2(+2m/s)+v2. I believe it is wrong.

Note that total momentum and kinetic energy are conserved as a result. No other final velocity conserves both. The result than Ball #1 leaves at 2 m/s could have been predicted by solving both equations.
